The Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs has announced a new annual show to be held each fall, called "MAC presents THEY WRITE THE SONGS." The inaugural show will be held today, November 18th at 4pm at Baruch College's Engelman Recital Hall (Lexington Avenue at 25th Street).
Each year, this show will present the work of selected songwriters, highlighting both those who are well-established, as well as those who are on the rise. Songs written by these outstanding songwriters will be performed throughout the show by singers who have previously either won or been nominated for MAC Awards, or in some cases, by the songwriters themselves.
The songwriters selected for the inaugural show of this new annual series are Jeff Blumenkrantz, Barry Kleinbort, Johnny Rodgers, Mary Liz McNamara, Nate Buccieri and Scott Evan Davis. The host for the evening will be Grammy award winning songwriter Julie Gold. Nate Buccieri will be the musical director.
With performances by: Penny Fuller, Rebecca Luker, Karen Mason, Alysha Umphress, Liz Lark Brown, Marquee Five, Colleen McHugh, Lennie Watts, and Jonathan Whitton.
